Squads of the 2015 Copa America

Posted on 9 Jun, 2015, by in Soccer

The 2015 Copa America (hosted by Chile) is almost upon us, so it’s a good time to check out the squads of the favorites like Argentina (with Lionel Messi), Brazil (including Neymar), Colombia (having James Rodriguez) and Uruguay (showcasing Edinson Cavani), playing without the still suspended Luis Suarez.

The 2014 World Cup finalists have been drawn with Uruguay, Paraguay and Jamaica in group B. They’ve won the Copa America 14 times, but the last of which has been in 1993, since then losing twice in the final (2004 and 2007, both to Brazil) and were a disappointing quarterfinals exit in 2011, despite hosting the tournament.

A team that hasn’t been to the World Cup since 1994; winners of the Copa America in 1963 but not past the group stage 1997 and runner-ups on that occasion. There really aren’t that many expectations out the Bolivians, drawn together with Chile, Ecuador and Mexico.

Still trying to pick up the pieces from conceding 10 goals and scoring just one in their final two matches of the 2014 World Cup (which they hosted). Brazil have won the tournament four times between 1997 and 2007, but didn’t make it past the quarterfinals in 2011. They’re with Colombia, Venezuela and Peru this time.

The hosts and one of the favorites to lift the trophy on July 4, Chile will play with Mexico, Ecuador and Bolivia in a group they should advance from. They’ve made the round of 16 in the last two World Cups. They’ve never won the tournament, making the quarterfinals in 2011.

The 2001 champions (their only win) of the Copa America, Colombia didn’t make it past the quarterfinals four years ago. They’re a lot more confident and dangerous now, following a fine performance in the World Cup, making the final 8 as well. They’re drawn with Brazil, Venezuela and Peru this time.

Mexico have played in every Copa America since 1993, finishing as Runner-Ups twice, but didn’t make it out of the Group Stage in 2011. They’ve been keeping an impressive streak round of 16 appearances (but no further) in the World Cup, doing the same in 2014, losing to the Netherlands in a drama filled match. They’re with Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia in group A.
